During these strange and scary days, you have time on your hands that you ordinarily wouldn’t.

Research says we need reasons to feel confident about our decisions to buy something. That goes for buying a product or buying into a concept or a message. When we feel confident about our decision there’s actually a neuron in the brain that fires up and triggers people to take action.

Canon Solutions America is driven to help customers find inkjet success, and one new way they’re doing that is through Project 360. Launched in early 2019, Project 360 is designed to broaden the scope of services that customers receive when they purchase an inkjet press.
